not thinking of any city in particular here. with that kind of operation, let's say you have that operation in a city where the daily newspaper in town started to do some very strange things. i imagine that. it was owned by somebody who was very openly talking they were going to support particular causes, particular developments, particular parties. i imagine something like that could happen. does that add to the obligation of citizens, people like you, to do more to fill that void? or can you still fill the void -- is that city just out of luck? >> first of all, it is a remarkable symbol of what is happening to journalism. locally, the owners of the "union tribune" just purchased the "north county times" -- the assets are collapsing in value. they bought it for $12 million, sold his house for $18 million. putting aside that, these properties can be acquired and done with resume. this is not an expensive problem defects. i think that is an important -- an expensive problem to fix. i think that is an important thing to remember. i have a budget of a little more than $1 million, which is a lo
. when i was a city councilman in lyndhurst, ohio, i introduced the first property-tax rollback in the history of our city. we give tax relief to senior citizens and working families. i worked in a bipartisan fashion -- and we reconstructed the oversight to the workers' compensation investment fund. i worked in a bipartisan way to pass down the budget and try to keep young people in ohio. identified the exports with ohio and worked in a bipartisan way to manage the finances in the state of ohio where we have the highest rating on our bonds and investment and voluntarily cut our budget two years in a row. >> i would emphasize that he voted with his own party -- he voted with them 96% of the time. the only time he doesn't is if the interest group does not have a better offer. he voted against his leadership to satisfy the pay lenders and raised a lot of money. there is nothing in his elektra -- in his electoral records that would show that he ever stands up to his political party on anything significant. >> is there one big area of disagreement you have with mitt romney, mandel? >
calls the revolving door of repeat offenders in and out of the city. if you drive around they look like they are on the verge of becoming permanent badlands. this will erode any hope of the city's much promised and long talk about revitalization. we need drastic measures. >> let me give you what we're doing. first of all operation pressure point. states who are working with wellington police officers in the city. i have been out there with them, i have been at east 24th street. talk to the residence and they love seeing the people out of control. the state police working with probation and parole officers as well as use probation and parole officers. this is in the public safety area. the attorney-general's office is making sure we have the right prosecution so folks stay behind bars. there also appearing in violation of probation hearings. that is a piece of it. there's no question that public safety is a piece of it. the other is some of the social issues. that is why we opened 10 community centers. kids have a place to go. we opened a curfew center to make sure that kids had a place
transportation systems, etc. thank you. >> the cities, who's going to fix the cities and how? >> be glad to take a shot at it. >> please. >> i'm not sure that -- and i can understand if you haven't seen this because there's been a lot of hue and cry -- we passed, this year, the most farthest-looking transportation bill in the history of this country, since eisenhower started the interstate highways, $150 billion for improving the infrastructure. that happened when i was president and so i'm very proud of the way that came about and i think it's a very, very good beginning. like mr. perot, i'm concerned about the deficits, and $150 billion is a lot of money but it's awful hard to say we're going to go out and spend more money when we're trying to get the deficit down. but i would cite that as a major accomplishment. we hear all the negatives. when you're president you expect this, everybody's running against the incumbent, they can do better, everyone knows that. but here's something that we can take great pride in because it really does get to what you're talking about. our home initiative, our
, the democratic strength in urban areas, the city of columbus, cincinnati, the southwest part of the state. the three blue counties, that's coal country area. appalachian influence. athens county near the market is the home of ohio university. and you have the industrial area of leary -- lake eerie. the blue dots show were the democrats have visited. you concede that they have been employing in early voting strategy. each place that they have visited is a place that has a significant african-american inner-city population. currently, if you look at the early voting totals. three visits in cleveland, one in lorraine that has a small industrial community down the road. one in canton, a small african american community. barack obama has visited ohio university. the one dot is bill clinton. they sent the big dog to the area where everyone had the votes will be culturally like him. there is one shot that does not fit into that, two counties north of columbus. joe biden was an ohio -- in marion, ohio. he was not there to pay homage to warren harding or norman thomas. he was there because they ar
, new york city where we could see 6-eleven be combined surge in tied in some spots. the storm surge unit has been watching the water values all day and everything seems to be coming up in the areas we generally anticipated. it appears to be on its way to coming to fruition generally in the rainfall could be measured in terms of feet. hopefully not more than 1 foot, but certainly could be more than a foot in some places. several inches in many spots. that could lead -- that will be coastal areas the and inland over the next few to several days that could lead to the flash flooding on short-time skills and potentially river flooding. there is also the snow component. up to 2-3 feet of snow in the mountain areas. virginia along the appalachian chain between kentucky, virginia, tennessee, and north carolina. will the hazard event. time is running out for preparation and many areas, especially coastal as conditions deteriorate before landfall later tonight. that is a summary of what i have. back to you. >> with that, we will moving to questions. please limit yourself to one question with
that the city of syracuse and many other municipalities may soon face financial insolvency, what would it take for you to consider either voting to help the debt ceiling in the city. buekle: i think it is because of the federal government, federal mandates that the government places on him, whether it is from education or medicaid. that is a shared responsibility. a lot of the problems in our city faces are because of the burden for the federal government places on them. i wanted to go back. i want to go back to this budget issue. and the willingness to compromise. simpson-bowles is a compromise. it is a discussion of how we will get this country back on a fiscally sound clip that is bipartisan. i was one of 38 who voted for simpson-bowles. to say this is a better way. let's do this bipartisan approach and what is best for the people in this country. >> moderator: thank you. ursala rozum, a follow-up question for you. if there is a 10% across-the-board cut in all federal grants, new york could lose more than $6 billion. according to the rabbits report, states interests should be on the table w

corridor, the motorcycle bikers, people in sun city, standing in lines to see their candidate. in the end, they are speaking in ways that strategists and pundits and we do not. if we are smart, we listen. >> i confess, i get this tinkle on election night up and down my back, and i get teary when i think about we are one of very few paces, on the planet where we can change our leadership without firing a gun. as many years as i have been doing it, i get so excited. >> it is amazing. [applause] >> would agree, is going to be most motivated to get out of bed. one of your observations, in the immediate aftermath of the primaries, the defeated candidates were not serve, but they see more trouble now now that the race is close. it will be very interesting to watch what happens over the next couple weeks. now i would like to take some questions from the audience for our distinguished panel, our own of thehall version program. as those from the audience approached the microphones to ask any questions, they might have, i will ask you all if all three of you have twitter handles. as the social medi

[applause] now, we are about ready for today's main event, the debate. our moderator is karen, the chief of the ohio state house news bureau. we just want to make sure we have
clinics in our inner cities and our rural areas so people can have access to health care. the key is to control the cost and maintain the quality. to do that you need a system of managed competition where all of us are covered in big groups and we can choose our doctors and our hospitals across a wide range, but there is an incentive to control costs and i think there has to be -- i think mr. perot and i agree on this, there has to be a national commission of health care providers and health care consumers that set ceilings to keep health costs in line with inflation plus population growth. now let me say, some people say we can't do this but hawaii does it. they cover 98 percent of their people and their insurance premiums are much cheaper than the rest of america. and so does rochester, n.y. they now have a plan to cover everybody and their premiums are two-thirds of the rest of the country. this is very important. it's a big human problem and a devastating economic problem for america. and i'm going to send a plan to do this within the first hundred days of my presidency. it's
's a picture of union station right now. a major transportation hub for the city and nation. amtrak trains stop here. amtrak trains not running today neither is the met tro because of hurricane sandy. flights cancelled across the country and businesses and schools shut down. federal government shut down today and early voting shut down all of this due to effects of the hurricane. president obama held a briefing about the sevty of the storm. we will have that for you a little bit later t. president cancelled his political appearances today and tomorrow. mitt romney has cancelled campaigning for tonight and tomorrow. we'll have live coverage of a federal emergency management agency briefing. that is expected to happen at about 2:30 eastern. >> we do have more road to the white house coverage coming up this average which we have a rally for president obama. the president will not be there but vice president biden will be there. we'll have coverage on of that event on c-span at 3:30 this afternoon. >> a look next at debate between candidates in the 10th district in illinois. this is courtesy of wtt
. a couple weeks ago, i got some flags pursing publicly in the newspapers that a myriad city was the atm for american politics -- flax for publicly saying in the newspapers that new york city was the atm for american politics. i am not so sure about that. sometimes i wake up and say it is good to be part of this, but other times i say no. the meeting in the afternoon and the banks in the morning. the conference call where we get all 14 million people on one call. the costs are huge. try to communicate in that way. that being said, we are writing checks, but we're not participating at the same levels. this has taken on a greater significance. and the last brochure's going into the bombing years and going forward. what we are doing effectively -- in the obama years and going forward. we are not participating. check writing is an important part of public participation rather than going to vote. it is kind of nuts. we are presiding over people like me that have created a political system. i talked about this this week in the wall street journal. where a participating in a system that has bec
, "i don't recall them being quite that friendly." >> hold on just a second. tension city. where it starts, apparently. >> "apparently bentsen barely knew kennedy when they served in the house together. if quayle had known that, he could have probably had a rejoinder." >> in the newspapers the next day, jfk reference transform the debate and may have made lloyd bentsen and hero and dukakis not, but may have affected the election, but they may have this wrong. let's assume -- we cannot really confirm whether bentsen knew kennedy. we would have to figure that out and go way back. but we have testimony that he did not. now let's change the line. i will have david deliver it. would you get up and say, "i saw jack kennedy and you are no jack kennedy?" i mean, that loses it, doesn't it? you need that "friend of mine" thing. you need to watch what happens on television because it needs to all the fact-checked. the problem is we send folks off to war based on who gets elected. i am arguing we ought to do something about it. i will have recommendations later on if you are interested durin
and burnham parker was elected to the paradise valley city council in 2008. this debate is courtesy of kae- tv and is under half an hour. >> tonight's show is a debate between the nine congressional district representatives. this is an opportunity for give- and-take between candidates and one of the state's most important offices. interruptions are allowed provided that those interested are allowed to respond. three candidates are in the race to represent this district, a democrat, kyrsten sinema, republican burn and parker, and libertarian powell gammill. he is making his fifth run for congress. each candidate will have the opportunity for one minute opening statements. we would drew numbers to see who goes first and that is powell gammill. >> i differ from the other two candidates because i am not here to rule over you but to advocate for our personal freedom. i live by a single principle that it is illegal to initiate force or from others and i expect everyone else to live by that same standard. that is what the founding fathers were trying to give us, a system that maximizes personal l
to obtain a high-school diploma. in our major cities, half of our kids don't graduate. half. in this war on poverty, poverty is winning. we deserve better. we deserve a clear choice for a brighter future. what is the alternative approach that romney and i are offering? to hear some tell it, we think everyone should just fend for themselves. that is just a false argument. that is setup to avoid a genuine debate. the truth is mitt romney and i believe in true compassion and upward mobility. we are offering a vision based on real reforms to lift people out of poverty. look. "i'm a republican. our party does a good job to speaking to the part of the american dream that involves taking what your passionate about and making a successful living. part of what makes america great is americans do not succeed, we look out to one another through communities. we have a vision of making the community stronger, but we do not always do a good job of laying out that vision. we want to change that. we understand the importance of community from experience. i come from a town that has been hit as hard as a
there are debates in big cities about whether the polls should be open later because the lines are too long. at the same time, the following things will happen -- there will be mistakes made, votes miscounted, things that, they found absentee ballots on the bottom of this room they forgot to check. that is going happen. i will tell you that it is 99.99% about honest to goodness mistakes and not malice. >> i could not agree more that what you have got most counties spend more money on food in the county jail then on administering elections. so we get all the accuracy that we pay for. you want precision? we will have to spend a whole lot more. we basically have a system that is based on a oftentimes elderly workers using new technology. think about it. surely -- there will be the acorn people on one side, the crowd in virginia -- there will be samples of that. but there is not a serious voter fraud problem in this country. the bush administration in eight years, they found fewer than one for all 50 states. that is negligible. it is people who want to deny, who would not accept that they lose
memorial foundation dinner in new york city. the fund raiser was a chance for each candidate to joke about themselves, their opponent, and the 2012 campaign. president obama appeared with senator john mccain in 2008. from the waldorf-astoria hotel, this is about 40 minutes. >> thank you. i hope you all enjoy your meal. doctor henry kissinger is up here on the stage. [applause] he told me it is his favorite dinner. we have many distinguished guest tonight. governor cuomo is here. [applause] the governor is working on some material for his 2016 announcement speech. [laughter] i notice he gets closer and closer to the podium every year. "jaws."k;e [laughter] chuck schumer is here. there was recently a story in the paper about how he has been actively playing matchmaker among his staff. 12 marriages have resulted. it is safe to say that chuck has stopped trying to work across the aisle. he is pushing them down the aisle. [laughter] congratulations, chuck, for getting attention from one of the only sections of the new york times that does not already cover you, the wedding section. [laughter] y
jobs get the skills they need and help the kids in our inner cities get out of the schools that are trapping them in poverty and give them a good education so they can get on with their lives. cut spending. balance the budget and stop the washington knows best and we can keep spending money we do not have. let's champion of small businesses. this is bigger than that. this just is not getting jobs. it just isn't creating energy. it is bigger than that. america, it is an idea. it is not just a country with a flag. it is not just wisconsin or ohio or california or maine, it is an idea. you know, it is the only country founded on an idea. the idea is really clear. thomas jefferson said it so well in the declaration of independence. our rights come from nature and nature's god, not from government. that is the answer to the american idea. [applause] our founders established this. i see cheese heads all over. it makes me hungry sometimes when i see that. i see veterans here. the veterans of this country put on the uniform and serve our nation and secured each and every generation
, the average, and you want to be a family practitioner in a small town in rural ohio or inner-city cleveland, you can do that because your repayment obligation is determined by your salary, not the other way around. [applause] believe it or not, i cannot believe people do not know this. believe it or not, this is $60 billion cheaper over 10 years than the old system, so, what did they do with the $60 billion? they used it to guarantee increasing pell grants to keep up with inflation and nature tuition tax credits will be there for middle-class families. so, president obama's position is get it fully implemented by the end of 2014. now, 2013. they move it up year. when is governor romney's position? repeal the law, give the money back to the banks, mixed in loans more expensive, increased the dropout rate because it will be harder to repay and more costly, and give the subsidies back to the bank. it is a clear choice. if i were a student in any college or university in america, on that alone i would say i have to reelect barack obama, president of the united states. [applause] about the healt
party. many catholics were from immigrant families who lived in the inner cities, and they are identified with labor union sentiments. economic status and ethnicity, largely explained catholic support for the democrats for many decades. the splintering of the catholic vote began in the 1970's, when george mcgovern in 1972 appeal to abortion rights advocates and then the supreme court issued roe v. wade decision. but the 1980's, the republicans' appeal to perot-like voters and more catholics began to shift their allegiance is. from 1980 until 2000, only one democratic presidential candidate secured a majority of the catholic vote, and that was bill clinton in his 1996 landslide. religious beliefs are not the dominant influence on the voting behavior of most catholics. there is no single political based organization that mobilizes catholics as a voting bloc. the church hierarchy is sometimes reluctant to offer six years with regard to voting preferences. when bishops offer such signals, many catholic voters simply ignore those appeals. the loosening of the democrati
, heather wilson wrote a letter to the city council of las cruces opposing a monument and endorsed a bill by steve pierce that would preserve less land. martin heinrich wrote an article in april supporting a much larger monument. why do you believe the larger or smaller monument is the best alternate for the protection of these lands? >> that is what people have told me. people who have -- this is important to them. in particular, the sportsmen have said, we love the mountains, but those mountain ranges to the west of the river are critical for us. in addition, there was a recent poll that was done that asked people, do you want a monument? the overwhelming answer was yes. more people prefer the one that had both sides of the river. the county is spectacular. dona ana county. it deserves the recognition that a monument would bring. it deserves the tourism that would come here as a result. >> this is a very big difference between us in the way you go about managing public land and resolving issues and disputes. i believe they're gorgeous. the question is, do we put 25% of the county into a
in the city i woke up with a phone ringing at 7:38. my friend and drew said, congratulations. i had no idea what he was talking about. a few minutes later, i had another call from my roommate who was living in south korea, calling to offer me her congratulations. again, and finally a third call came in and it was my dad. he said, he had just been chosen to run as senator john kerry's vice-presidential running mate and to get on an airplane and go to washington. i told him that was old news and he was the third person to call at that point. the networks were already barking about it. that is when i knew my life and my family's life had changed p. in one other universe that koch does someone literally half way across the world tell you that your dad got a job before you know? i threw some clothes into a suitcase and headed to the airport. we embarked on an announcement tour, hitting key battleground states, holding a rally after rally. there is a lot about life that is getting used to come up but i picked one thing up quickly, which is how to smile and clapper the same time. -- and clap at th
of the farms every year, coming into the cities, needing jobs. so they want the economy to work and the world to be free and open. and so we can be a partner with china. we don't have to be an adversary in any way, shape or form. we can work with them. we can collaborate with them if they're willing to be responsible. now, they look at us and say, is it a good idea to be with america? how strong are we going to be? how strong is our economy? they look at the fact that we owe them a trillion dollars and owe other people 16 trillion in total, including them. they -- they look at our -- our decision to -- to cut back on our military capabilities -- a trillion dollars. the secretary of defense called these trillion dollars of cuts to our military devastating. it's not my term. it's the president's own secretary of defense called them devastating. they look at america's commitments around the world and they see what's happening and they say, well, ok, is america going to be strong? and the answer is yes. if i'm president, america will be very strong. we'll also make sure that we have trade relatio
. this been soft employment of the cities. in terms of growth, this is where it starts. >> i completely agree. >> i would add that 70% of our need is in the sector. it is very easy to say that you get productivity and therefore you get all of these other benefits. we have seen a lot of the jobs disappear while we were getting things and productivity. 5.5 million jobs disappear. we have seen an awful lot of manufacturing jobs show up in other places. so, why is manufacturing automatically a good deal for america as a country? it is obviously good for the profits generated. what will this do for the middle class? >> i would like to point out that some of what we have seen with respect to the decline in labor employment. i would remember when motorola outsourced its logistics' and its customs operation to gps. those jobs stayed overnight in america but they were registered as a decline in manufacturing employment when the reality was the boundary had softened and it now inc. its supplier, ups. we did not lose manufacturing jobs simply by shifting them. >> when you say you want to boost manufactu
qualifies for it, but her bank, city mortgage does not participate in this. what happens to people like that? host: this is a right-wing from twitter, what will be government do about underwater homes when it cannot refinance. guest: this is a real issue. i wish to say there's one good way to try to get this done in d.c., it is for your friend to call her congressman, or send a letter laying out the issues that she faces in terms of refinancing. because there are multiple programs the federal government has on refinancing. there may be an avenue for her there. that is that practical level. on the broader sense, the problem is that we struggled in d.c. to find an effective way of refinancing homes. if you look of the presidential campaign, mitt romney attracted a lot of attention and nevada, saying the markets should bottom out. since introduced a plan that is kind of short on details. but once alternatives to foreclosures. one of the issues that we face is that if you have a principal refinancing of mortgages, someone has to take a loss. and no one wants to take a loss. so we kind of pushed
and i had written a paper on twice the size of the sequestration. there are others in this city who had other plans for reducing military spending, not on the grounds that it has the economic effect, but that it is not necessary. to use the crime analogy, crime has declined, and therefore the need for those services has also declined. i encourage you to look at our earlier study from 2010 and others. even bowles-simpson had some talk in there about military spending and what that would look like. >> one further point to make, that if you look at the budgets, the baseline numbers, exclude the overseas contingency operations, for the out years, those numbers are slightly phony, because the cuts assume that the baseline actually will have been what is spent in the absence of sequestration. i am not convinced of that at all. those numbers may have been smaller, in which case -- >> adding to that, one of the reasons i am in favor of sequester, even regardless of what happens -- any of their production strategy should start with an across-the-board cut. maybe this is too big in terms of secur
to make sure that a dirty bomb cannot attack. city. we want to make sure that our religious institutions -- >> let her finish. you will have a chance to rebut. >> we look for fat and waste in the program. that is why i did not vote for this budget deal. i believe sequestration will be bad for new york. it will cut the things we need most -- firefighters, police force, education. >> sequestration would be terrible, senator, but what have you done to avoid sequestration? you have to decide which until japan's to make. as far as i can see, you have not done anything to advance the ball and bat -- you have to decide which cuts to make. as far as i can see, you have not done anything to bans the ball in that -- advance the ball in that. if i were representing a york, i would know what is going on. it would not touch me off of guard. in terms of the attack on the federal reserve, it will be important to make sure that i ran does not get a nuclear weapon. we do not want nuclear weapons in the hands of any of the terrorists. that will increase what we already know are not only threats of terrori
